    Default Insect spray for babies and toddlers

    With dengue around I'm trying to make more of an effort to use insect repellent. We have a bottle of "Off!" in the cupboard that some visitors left behind a while ago but its a couple months over its expiry date so I'm looking for some more. Preferably a natural spray that actually works. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    We use Moo Goo Tail Swat Body Spray, it seems to work really well is natural and smells delicious. You can get it at most Terry White Chemists. It also doesn't have the nasty chemical DEET in it which is always a good thing! It is also made in Australia and is safe for babies, children and adults.

    I use Vanilla Mozi but it's a lotion/cream. You can only get it online.

    Look for any product without DEET if you can, it is quite a nasty additive. I used to work for an insect repellant company and have not used any products containing DEET since as they are potentially too harmful for my liking, especially for children.
